Sami-Sabinsa Group has over 439 US and International patents awarded and several more in the process. All products manufactured by Sami-Sabinsa Group are formulated in accordance with the global standards. A solid foundation for dreams – Sami-Sabinsa Group has nine state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities across the globe equipped with a continuous extraction plant with 40 tonnes extraction capacity of herbal raw material per day.
An important aspect of the closed solvent recovery system in this facility is that the environmental pollution due to the release of solvent vapors is diminished.

Sami-Sabinsa Group is the first company which installed a Super Critical Fluid Extraction facility in collaboration with IIT Bombay with Indian technology.
In this technology, only liquid carbon dioxide is used in its supercritical stage as an extraction solvent. All the effluent streams are treated and disposed scientifically. Reflecting the internal system of quality and regulatory requirements, the facilities are certified by Kosher and Halal. Kunigal and Hyderabad facilities are both certified for having Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF).
